His criticism of Gluck for mixing opera with pop has echoed down the years, right down to Catherine Jenkins in our own time. But they were all at it, Melba, Eames, Garden, Caruso, the lot. Why not? Like the great Count John McCormack, they gave pleasure to millions who had no interest in opera, and, being justly rewarded for doing so, made the most of their talent.

Subject: No Appologies for Miss Gluck
Alma Gluck performed at the Met at most 3 seasons. Her interest was concert work, andshe used the then-new medium of the gramophone to promote herself and her work. She recorded what sold. "Carry Me Back to Old Virginny" was the first million selling Red Seal. My mother saw her perform as a child and I have listened to her work since I first heard "Whispering Hope" (duet w Louise Homer) from my grandmother's record collection. My favorite Gluck is "The Old Folks at Home," done with her husband, noted violinist Efrem Zimbalist.

Although I'm all for the mixup of genres. I'm not sure if this all works. Alma Gluck apparently was a very famous singer in her day. She's got the voice, no doubt about that. Her voice is perfect for opera. Why she decided to sing Southern life songs is anyones guess. Almost like the Opera singer who sang beatles songs as well. Nuh uh. Approach at your own risk.
